The Mercedes-AMG One will Enter Production in 2022

Mercedes-AMG is getting ready to make its most powerful car ever

  • The concept was unveiled in 2017, with production scheduled for 2019

  • It will be powered by technology borrowed from Formula 1

  • All 275 units have already been reserved

Mercedes-AMG has now confirmed that the One hybrid hypercar will begin production in mid-2022, over 3 years after the original schedule.

The Mercedes-AMG One concept was unveiled back in 2017 to commemorate AMG’s 50th anniversary and production of the road going versions was due to start in 2019.

After many delays due in part to the need to have the drivetrain comply with emissions regulations, the company has now contacted people who had reserved one upon its release to confirm if they were still interested and apparently, they were because all 275 units to be made have already been spoken for, despite a price of 2,75 million euros.

The Mercedes-AMG One is a hypercar that is race ready, while still being road legal. It borrows many of its mechanical elements from Mercedes’ Formula 1 racing program.

Indeed, it will be powered by a turbocharged 1.6L V6 engine coupled with a high-performance hybrid system that should provide it with more than 1,000 horsepower, making it the most powerful vehicle ever made by AMG.

Its capabilities don’t seem to be diminished by regulations, since it can accelerate from 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) in less than 6 seconds and it should reach of top speed of around 350 km/h (217 mph), and it is possible those numbers will be even more impressive when the car actually reaches owners later in 2022.
